Internet Addiction

Christakis, Dimitri. (2010). Internet Addiction: a 21st century epidemic? BMC Medicine, Vol. 8, p.61-63 Retrieved from EBSCOhost.

Internet addiction is a problem on the rise. While there is no medical term for it yet, it poses a lot of risks. Internet addiction can contribute to other medical or sociological issues the individual may already have. Some of the online addictions are online gambling and gaming, especially gaming in kids. Kids are spending way too much time in front of the screen staring blankly into an endless world. People need to know their limit. Take in moderation, anything used too much of can’t lead to good. The article talks about how internet addictions jeopardizing employment, relationships and education. I totally agree. Be careful of your internet dosage, take in moderation.
